ZIM Upgrades its Asia-Black Sea service

05/04/2012 12:00

Improved Service Includes a New Direct Odessa Call and an Additional Joint Service (ABS), Enabling Two Weekly Calls to The Region.

ZIM is glad to announce a significant upgrade of its Asia–Black Sea services.
ZIM’s East Med/Black Sea Express Service (EMX) will add the port Odessa to its rotation. The new direct call, with improved transit time, adds a central gateway to Russia and CIS countries, in addition to the exclusive direct call in Novorossiysk. EMX will improve transit times from major Asian ports, including an exclusive call in Pusan.
In parallel, ZIM offers a new joint service, Asia-Black Sea (ABS), connecting major Asian ports with the ports of Constantza and Illichevsk, as well as the ports of Piraeus and Istanbul.

EMX line rotation:
Pusan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Dachan Bay, Port Kelang, Haifa, Ashdod, Istanbul, Odessa, Novorossiysk, Gemlik, Istanbul, Haifa, Mundra, Colombo, Port Kelang and Pusan

Together, these two additions constitute a significant upgrade; part of the company’s strategy to strengthen its leading position in the Black Sea region with two weekly sailings, wider port coverage, improved transit times and higher reliability.  

ZIM’s black Sea coverage is complemented by regional feeders, including Black Sea Ukraine Service (BSU) connecting the region with ports in Greece, Israel and Turkey, and the Constanta Poti Shuttle (CPS).

ZIM continues to improve and enhance its global services in response to market demands, making Customer Service our top priority.
